The cover story 'becoming an Andrean' is old hat to the Houssers of Toronto and Aurora. 
The Housser family is the only St. Andrew's family to have had four consecutive 
generations attend the School. On the cover of The Andrean, John J. Housser, currently in 
grade ten and a member of the class of 2003, sits in his grandfather's chair, while his 
father John F. '68 sits in his grandfather's. 

Harry B. Housser '03, one of the twenty-one original students enrolled in 1899 in 
Rosedale, was born in Winnipeg and founded the investment firm H.B. Housser and Co. in 
Toronto in 1928. Mr. Housser spent nearly 50 years in the investment business. He was 
president of the Toronto Stock Exchange in 1936-37 and a governor for 11 years. He was 
also on the Board of Governors of S.A.C. for nearly thirty years. He died in 1957. 

John G. Housser '32 worked for Chartered Trust following St. Andrew's, then enlisted 
two days before the war broke out in 1939. He made Captain in 1941, then spent three 
years as a prisoner of war after Dieppe. Awarded the Military Cross in 1946, he retired 
from the services with the rank of Brigadier General. Like his father, his career was spent 
in the investment business. He died in 1993. 

John F. Housser '68, an Aurora resident, carries on the family business tradition as an 
investment counsellor with Brant Securities in Toronto. He is a past president of the 
S.A.C. Association and has been a member of the Board of Governors of St. Andrew's since 

The fourth S.A.C. Nepal trek took place in the spring and Jim McGillivray reports on 
this tremendous experience for a group of our students. 

Features on Old Boys Ted Boswell '55, Gordon Henderson '69, Andy Gregg '81 and 
David Foster '89 are included in this issue. 

The Annual Report section features the Prize Day speech of Headmaster Ted Staunton, 
a full accounting of the activities of the students and other highlights of the school year 
ended in June 2000. It also recognizes the gifts of hundreds of Andreans who not only 
have improved our School by leaps and bounds but whose contributions make possible the 
publication of this magazine.

on the Future 







At the time of writing, only a few 
weeks separate the wettest Ontario 
summer in history and the opening 
of SAC.'s 102nd year. The lower 
fields were under water for much of 
July, much to the delight of the staff 
children living on campus who were 
seen paddling canoes under the 
football and soccer goalposts! We 
are hopeful that the large flock of 
Canada Geese which has taken up 
residence on the First Soccer field 
will depart before September. 

As you will read in my Prize Day 
Address, later in this issue, I was 
very pleased with most facets of 
school life during the 1999/2000 
academic year. Not only did the 
number of boys on the Honour Roll 
increase considerably over previous 
years, but the number of boys 
experiencing academic difficulties 
fell dramatically. All but one of our 
seventy-three graduating students 
gained acceptance to colleges or 
universities, many by way of 
scholarships. The major renovations 
made last summer to the Towers 
Library and to Memorial House were 
very well received by the boys, 
providing them with much improved 
facilities for quiet study and 
relaxation. The Faculty, as always, 
dedicated themselves totally to the 
advancement of the boys and 
initiated several new programs. 

I was particularly pleased with the 
commitment of our boys to numerous 
community service projects during 
the 99/00 school year. Donating time 
and energy to individuals less 
fortunate than themselves became a

priority for boys from Grade Six to 
OAC Hosting the Special Olympics 
Power Lifting event was definitely a 
high point of the year, particularly 
for the ninety-two S.A.O students 
who volunteered their time to make 
the games a success for the athletes. 

The 2000/2001 school year should 
prove to be equally successful. 
For the first time in the history of 
St. Andrew's College, the school 
population will surpass 500 students, 
520 to be exact. 

Thanks to the superb work of the 
Admission and Marketing staff, all 
boarding and day places were filled 
by May. Old Boys will be interested to 
know that the split between boarding 
and day students is now 50%-50%, 
but we are very encouraged by the 
fact that our boarding population 
has increased by 7% over last year 
and 15% over the previous year. 
Strategically, we want to maintain 
the boarding population at least at 
this percentage of the overall 
enrollment. The student population 
of over 500 boys is likely a temporary 
'blip' as the school prepares for the 
"Double Cohort" year in 2003 when 
Grade 13 is eliminated. Ideally, 

SA.C.'s student population after 
2003 will level out at around the 
500 mark. 

The introduction of Grade Six and 
the formation of a 'school-within-a- 
school' concept for boys in Grades 
6-8, are two significant factors in 
the recent enrollment surge. 
More leadership opportunities for 
adolescent boys, a separate team of 
teachers dedicated to this age group, 
daily monitoring of academic work, 
and supervised study for middle 
school boarders are some of the 
more popular features of this 
unique program. 

At the conclusion of the academic 
year, the Board of Governors met to 
formulate strategic policy goals to 
direct the School for the next three 
years. With enrollment strong and 
parent, student and faculty morale 
high, our greatest need as we 
begin a new century is in the 
area of facilities. 

Classrooms, new Music and 
Art facilities, and significant 
renovations to Ketchum Auditorium 
and the Dunlap Gymnasium have 
been identified as priorities at 
this stage. 

These are outlined in the School's 
recently completed and very exciting 
"Campus Master Plan", prepared by the 
architectural firm olKuwabara Payne 
McKenna Blumberg. The plan responds 
to the program requirements outlined in 
the Long-Range Facilities Task Force 
Report. It deals comprehensively with 
the need for new academic buildings 
and the upgrade of existing facilities. 

The plan incorporates the existing 
landscape and the original Marani, 
Morris and Allan campus as critical 
elements in the planning of new 
facilities. Subsequent editions 
of "The Andrean" will focus on 
developments in this area. 

I will conclude this article by 
officially welcoming Jim and Gail 
Herder to the Town of Aurora. After 

15 years of commuting from Toronto, 
Jim finally tired of the daily grind of 
the '404' and decided to purchase a 
home five minutes from St. Andrew's. 
It will be nice to have the #1 promoter 
of S.A.C. closer to the School! 

Ted Staunton 


John Walden, 

Assistant Headmaster 

Headmaster Ted Staunton has announced John Walden's appointment as 
Assistant Headmaster of the College. John is an Old Boy from the class of 
1971, and has taught English and some Geography at the School for 20 years. 
John considers "the general well-being of the boys" to be his prime focus. 
Housemasters report to him and he heads the Discipline Committee, 
overseeing an effort to grow this committee's function and instill a systematic 
approach to matters of discipline. Though he deals mostly in non-academic 
issues, he considers any boys in academic difficulty to be part of his purview. 
John continues to teach O.A.C. English and coach swimming. 

Mike Hanson, 

Director of the Middle School 

Mike Hanson was appointed Director of the Middle School in January. Mike 
comes to the position after 19 years at S.A.C., teaching mostly Science and 
Chemistry. His knowledge of the younger boys was augmented during a nine-year 
stint as Housemaster of Macdonald House from 1987-96. In 1998-99 he served as 
an assistant to the Director of the Middle School, working mostly with Grade 7 
boys. Mike is particularly excited by the current challenges of the Grade 6-8 group 
as St. Andrew's moves firmly toward a 'school-within-a-school' concept — a Middle 
School that is both separate but integrated, with a non-departmental focus and a 
faculty devoted solely to that age group. Mike's wife, Diane Austin, also teaches at 
St. Andrew's. They have two sons, Mark, in Grade 8 at the School, and Josh, who 
entered Grade 6 in September. 


Becoming An Andrean 

When Mr. & Mrs. John H. Housser 
were looking for a school for their sons 
Harry and Fred in the spring of 1899, 
little could they have envisioned the 
long line of Houssers who would attend 
St. Andrew's into its second century. 

Harry Broughton Housser would 
become one of twenty-one original 
students to join the school on 
September 10, 1899 under founding 
Headmaster The Rev. George Bruce. 
Fred Housser followed his brother to 
SAC. in 1901. 

Their parents likely selected the 
School for the reasons the first 
Prospectus proclaimed: 

"to maintain the moral and 
religious culture of a Christian 
home, to promote manliness, 
Integrity and a high sense of 
honour and truthfulness, and 
to Inspire boys with a generous 
respect tor all that is sacred. " 

The St. Andrew's that John and 
Linda Housser chose for their son 
John J. one hundred years later 
is the same school on a different 
campus and the Prospectus uses 
different words but with the 
same theme: 

"the complete man, the 
well-rounded citizen" and the 
philosophy of) the School is 
still rooted in the mission of 
nurturing Integrity, honour 
and truthfulness, encouraging 
a healthy balance In "mind, body, 
heart and spirit. " 

For over a century parents have 
looked to St. Andrew's for a quality 
liberal education geared to the 
unique learning needs of boys. 
St. Andrew's has always been about 
developing the complete man. A 
recent survey conducted by the 
Admission Office asked parents why 
they looked at St. Andrew's. The 
number one reason is for academics. 
Our full range of sports programs 
was second and the atmosphere in 
our halls was third. The St. Andrew's 
community plays a critical role in the 
School's admission process. 
Therefore, it is important that any 
mystery behind the admission

teacher Paul Bedard '79; and Science and Health teacher Nick Tsioros '88. 

process be stripped away in order 
that members of the community 
understand the importance of the 
role they play. 

Our academic program speaks 
for itself; each year St. Andrew's 
students are accepted into top 
universities in Canada and the 
United States. Although many are 
accepted into Ivy League schools, 
most choose to stay in Canada. Each 
year boys receive scholarships for 
their efforts. Of those who decide to 
attend university in the U.S., many 
receive scholarships. Recently 
named to the Bermuda Olympic 
Soccer Team, Kevin Richards, 
Class of 2000, has been awarded a 
full scholarship to attend Notre 
Dame to study and play soccer for 
the Fighting Irish. 

The Dean of Academics ensures 
that boys who experience academic 
difficulty are identified early and 
that every effort is made to assist 
boys to be successful. A strong 
focus on guidance and vocational 
counselling early on gives boys 
objectives to attain in their 
academics. The newly-relocated 
Guidance Office creates a space 
where boys can research exactly 
what university will suit their 
personality and their aspirations 

The athletic program at 
St. Andrew's is also important to 
parents (even more so to the boys!). 
Athletics play an important role in 
school life and in a boy's development 
The first function of sports at 
St. Andrew's is to set the stage 
for friendship and camaraderie. 
Practicing, playing and travelling 
together helps boys develop their 
bodies and minds as well as 
providing opportunities for them 
to build on their self-esteem and 
confidence. For each personality 
there is a sport. Some boys are 
attracted to large team sports such 
as football and hockey while others

prefer to challenge themselves in 
more individual sports such as 
swimming, fencing or racquet sports. 
The atmosphere or 'feeling' in the 
hallways is often cited by boys and 
parents in their reasons for choosing 
St. Andrew's. Boys that look you in 
the eye in the hallways, offer to help 
you find your way, and seem at ease 
with themselves lend the greatest 
sense of what it means to be 
an Andrean. 

The first step in the admission 
process is familiarization with the 
school. The Andrean community plays 
the greatest role in this task by 
providing the service of introducing 
families with promising boys to 
St. Andrew's. For many boys and 
parents the thought of an all-boys 
school is not appealing until they get 
to the campus and are pleasantly 

Alumni, parents and friends of the 
School can assist with the admission 
process by introducing a family to 
St. Andrew's by: 
• Telling someone about your 
association with the school, as 
an Old Boy, past parent, current 
parent or friend of the school. 

• Getting a copy of the school's 
Prospectus or the compact 
annual brochure, FACTS, to 
them. Simply call, write or email 
the Admission Office and ask 
for information to be sent to 
someone on your behalf. The 
FACTS brochure and the 
Prospectus lend themselves 
well to being placed in waiting 
rooms or on coffee tables. 

• Bringing a prospective family 

to Homecoming, the MacPherson 
Tournament, a play, FOCUS, 
the Carol Service or Cadet 
Inspection. The Admission 
Office, Development Office or 
Reception can help you with 
details on these events. 

• Inviting a member of the Admission 
Team to your home or business 
to make a presentation to 
friends, executives, or family 
members. In the Caribbean, 
several alumni and current 
parents have assisted the school 
greatly by hosting receptions for 
prospective parents to meet with 
current parents and alumni. 

How is an Andrean chosen? 

Once a family has chosen to apply 
to St. Andrew's, the task of selecting 
students falls to the Admission 
Committee which includes the 
Headmaster, Director of Admission, 
Director of Communication, Dean 
of Academics and the Director of the 
Middle School. Each member of the 
committee reviews an applicant's 
entire folder, looking first for the 
likelihood of academic success at 
St. Andrew's and, second, whether 
or not the applicant is likely to 
benefit and participate in the full 
spectrum of opportunity provided at 
St. Andrew's. If in the opinion of the 
committee a boy is academically 
capable of success and possesses the 
character of an Andrean, he will be 
found acceptable to the school. Next, 
if space for their status (Day or 
Boarding) and grade level is available, 
they will be offered admission. If there 
is not a space available, applicant's 
names are placed in a waiting pool 
which is revisited and re-ordered each 
time a space becomes available. 

Although this allows a good 
candidate coming late in the process 
an equal opportunity when a space 
becomes available, there is a definite 
advantage to beginning the admission 
process early in the fall of the year 
before admission. 

When is the best time to apply? 

St. Andrew's main intake years 
are Grades 6-8 for day students and 
Grades 6-9 for boarding students. 
After our 'intake' years, admission to 
St. Andrew's is based on filling spaces 
made available by attrition. Our day 
student population is usually filled by 
Grade 8 with minimal intake at the 
Grade 9 level. Our boarding intake 
fills at the Grade 9 level. Day student 
attrition is less than boarding 
attrition, increasing the urgency of 
starting day students in the Middle 
School. Boarding attrition creates a 
handful of spaces in boarding at 
each grade level from Grades 10 
through 12. We feel the best time is 
to start at St. Andrew's is in the 
Middle School (Grades 6-8).

for St. Andrew's and Havergal College in Nassau, Bahamas, this past February.

St. Andrew's. 

The importance of financial 
assistance and donations 
to the Scholarship and 
Bursary Fund 

Each year hundreds of Old Boys, 
Parents, Past Parents and friends of 
the School donate generously to the 
SAC. Foundation to provide financial 
assistance for over 120 boys or just 
over 22% of the school population. 

In the current year $715,000 has 
been awarded to these students for 
either a scholarship or a bursary. 
Scholarships are given to students 
based on academic excellence, while 
bursaries (mostly need-based) are 
awarded to boys with all-around 
ability who likely could not attend 
the school without financial 

Scholarships and bursaries have 
also allowed the sons of Old Boys to 
attend the school in recent years. 
For example, next year a new bursary 
will be made available to the son of 
an Old Boy through a special fund 
created by David Dunlap '56 and his 
sons through the S.A.C. Foundation. 
Sons of Old Boys whose fathers 
played a significant role in school 
life may be eligible for this bursary. 

The Admission Office Team 

Any member of the Admission Team 
would be happy to tell you more. 
The team is composed of Aubrey 
Foy, Struan Robertson '84, 
Dolly Moffat-Lynch and Carolyn 
O'Higgins. All have been involved 
with the school in a variety of 
capacities and are available to 
assist prospective parents. 

Mrs. Joy Housser, widow of the late 
John G. Housser '32 and President of the 
Ladies' Guild in 1966-67, presents the 
Housser Trophy for Upper School Clan 
competition to Austin Porter '00, one of only 
four fourth-generation Andreans (see cover 
story). Austin was representing Ramsey Clan, 
named for famed St. Andrew's teacher, 
Alan R. Ramsey '08 

Director of Admission, Aubrey Foy 

Mr. Foy has been at St. Andrew's 
College for 23 years, first as Head 
of Music, later as Housemaster of 
Flavelle House and now Director 
of Admission. An accomplished 
organist, Aubrey has vast experience 
nurturing boys' potential. He conducts 
most of the family interviews that form 
a part of the admission process, 
ensuring that boys and their parents 
have a clear understanding of the 
mission of the school and assisting 
them in making choices about the 
future of their sons' educations. 

Director of Communication, 
Struan Robertson '84 

Mr. Robertson '84 is an Old Boy of 
St. Andrew's who came to the school 
as a boarding student. No stranger to 
the ins and outs of boarding school 
life, Struan is actively involved in the 
promotion of the school, both in 
Canada and abroad, and with the 
Scholarship and Financial Aid 
program at St. Andrew's. He is a 
member of the Conference of 
Independent Schools — Business 
Affairs Committee and is conversant 
with the complex issues surrounding 
independent education today. 


Charles Sumner L. Herzberg '01 

Sixth on the College's first roll, 
Major-General Hetzberg was one 
of the most distinguished of the early 
Andreans. He was descended from 
military ancestors and grew 
to become a partner in the Toronto 
structural engineering from 
Harkness and Hertzberg. He was 
recalled to the service when the 
Second World War broke out as a 
lieutenant-colonel. He died of small 
pox in India in 1943, having attained 
the rank of Major-General. His great 
grandson Adam Hoffman started at 
SAC. in September 1999 as a grade 
9 student. 

Mark Cohen '08 

Mr. Cohen joined the school in 
1903 in Toronto and following St. 
Andrews went to U of T. He later 
was a manager of M.M. Cohen & Son. 
He died in a motor vehicle accident 
in 1953. His great grandson 
Jesse-Ross Cohen joined us in grade 
seven in September. 

William Harold Kelk '08 

Though he spent only one year at 
S.A.C., Mr. Kelk's death notice in 
1963 described him as "educated at 
St. Andrew's College." He became 
president of Leaside Block and Tile 
in Toronto and served with the 
Queen's Own Rifles during the 
First World War. His great-grandson 
is Austin Porter '00.

thumjung Hillary School in background 








1 1 is certainly the trip of a 
lifetime. What more exotic 
destination could there be for a 
group of high-schoolers and their 
teachers — anybody for that 
matter — but the base of Everest at 
the top of the world? They call it 

"Indescribable," said one of this 
year's fortunate travellers who tried 
to capture in words the effect of 
Nepal on a teenager. 

Less than 10 years after 
Tony Myrans made initial contact 
with Zeke O'Connor, President of 
the Canadian Branch of the Hillary 
Foundation, at a fundraising 
banquet, selection to the biannual 
St. Andrew's Society for Service in 
Nepal trip (SASSIN) has become 
one of S.A.C.'s most sought-after, 
prized, difficult and affecting 
experiences. The first trip in 1992 
came as a result of Tony's life-long 
interest in mountaineering and 
Hillary's initial visit to St. Andrew's 
College, a remarkable day in the fall 
of 1991. Hillary's presence at the 
school and attentiveness to students 
and teachers alike seemed to inspire 
everyone. Nearly $36,000 was raised 
for the Hillary Foundation that 
day — the largest amount ever — and 
SASSIN was born. 

The selection process for the 
eight boys who ultimately make the 
trip is rigorous. Academic strength is 
significant not only for its own sake, 
but as a measure of who might best 
maintain scholarly excellence in the 
face of a long absence during the 
height of the school year. Physical 
ability is also considered, given the 
demands of trekking in the 
Himalayas. But character, 
compatibility, past involvement 
in community service work and team 
skills are equally important. The call 
for interested students for the 2000 
trip went out in the fall of 1998 as 
fundraising efforts went into gear. 
Willingness to become involved 
in these efforts with no promise of 
a trip was also considered in the 
selection process.

By the fall of 1999 the team had 
been chosen: Adam Brander, Ben 
Craig, Tom Haney, Josh Lim, John 
Lyons, Iain Myrans, Paul Perrier 
and Giancarlo Trimarchi. True to 
the well considered tradition of 
the expeditions, Marke Jones, 
second-in-command in 1998 under 
Greg Shields, led the trip. Steve 
Kimmerer provided additional staff 
leadership, with a view to leading 
the next trip in 2002. 

Four straight days of travel 
beginning March 9 through 
Vancouver, Seoul, and Singapore 
culminated in hotel lodgings in 
Kathmandu at 4,500 feet of 
elevation. Here the party 
acclimatized and acquired needed 
paperwork before leaving on the 
most arduous part of the trip — more 
than two weeks of 'trekking' or 
trudging through the Himalayas by 
day, with tent accommodations at 
night. The final two weeks would be 
spent in the village of Khumjung, 
where the focus would be on 
community service and learning about 
the Nepalese. Both parts of the trip 
would be tremendous eye-openers for 
the participants, both in what they 
would learn of the largest and most 
breathtaking geographic formations 
on the planet, and how they would 
perceive the daily life of an ancient 
people whose poverty cannot quell 
their love of life and family. 

While the trekking portion of the 
trip would be spent in tents, lodges 
would provide refuge during transit 
days and the last part of the trip in 
the village of Khumjung — an 
improvement over the 1992 trek 
spent almost completely in tents. 
The trip itself was planned, as in 
previous years, with the help of a 
firm called Asian Trekking, whose 
ties are strong with both the 
Nepalese government and the 
Hillary Foundation. The latter 
connection results in considerable 
respect and care being taken with 
the SASSIN group, a benefit not 
necessarily accorded the average 
tourist group. Unlike most Asian 
Trekking expeditions, the 





community service component 
whereby the S.A.C. group lends its 
skills and labour to a Nepalese 
community for two weeks, is unique. 

The term 'expedition' could very 
nearly be used to describe the 
group's trekking activity. If you saw 
them you might think they were 
going to the top of Everest itself. As 
many as 10 Sherpas accompany the 
eight boys and two teachers, 
including the 'Sidar', or head 
Sherpa, two guides, two assistants, 
a cook, 10 yaks and two yak drivers. 
Relationships develop within this 
chemistry and these can be very 
affecting. Past trekker Neil Ritchie, 
who made the trip the year he 
graduated in 1996, described as his 
most vivid recollection of that trip, 
"becoming incredibly close with 
Ang Dali, one of our Sherpas, the 
nicest and most generous person I 
have ever met in my entire life." 

The trekking — 12 days in 
tents — was steady but careful. 
Climbs of more than 1,000 feet a day 
can lead to altitude sickness, a 
constant aggravation for any trekkers 
at high altitudes. Over the course of 
the next few weeks every boy would 
become sick at some point, either 
with altitude sickness — AMS (Acute 
Mountain Sickness) — or one of a 
number of parasitic illnesses that can 
dog travellers at exotic locales. The 
only sure cure for AMS is to move to 
a lower altitude, which is one of the 
reasons for two staff members 
accompanying the eight students. It 
was not unusual for the group to split 
temporarily while a trekker 
recovered from illness. It was just 
such a separation that resulted in 
one of the great feats of the trip after 
Steve and Ben Craig turned back to 
fight the AMS that afflicted Ben, 
while the rest of the group continued 
to one of the trip's most inspiring 
points: Kalapatthar. 

Located at 18,200 feet, Kalapatthar 
is a 'trekking peak', the SASSIN 
group's main objective and the 
highest point attained on the trip. 
For most of the SASSIN travellers 
since 1992, Kalapatthar has provided 

the high point of the trip, the most 
vivid recollection, and, with 
Mt. Everest in the background, the 
most prized photo. Ben Craig was 
unfortunately struck by AMS at 
Lobuche, the last stop before the 
final climb. Ben, Steve Kimmerer and 
a Sherpa named Dawa eventually had 
to travel with Ben to the Medical Aid 
Station on lower ground at Pheriche 
while the rest of the group continued 
their ascent. A day or so later, when 
Ben appeared much better, they 
walked back up to Lobuche, where 
they met the SASSIN party returning 
from their ascent of Kalapatthar. 
Their group's exhilaration convinced 
the trio to attempt the trip 
themselves, and by 4 a.m. the next 
morning they were off, ascending 
nearly 6,000 feet to Kalapatthar and 
back to Lobuche, all in 12 straight 
hours. It would have been a 
formidable trip for a healthy adult, 
much less a recovering teen. "It was a 
tremendously tough climb," says 
Steve Kimmerer, looking back on the 
achievement, "and I honestly thought 
I would end up making the summit 
alone while Ben and Dawa waited 
below. But for Ben to show the 
determination he did to make it to 
the top of Kalapatthar after what 
he'd been through was absolutely 

The trekkers experienced a range 
of emotions during the expedition 
stage of the trip. This included 
extremes, such as the climber's 
'high' on reaching the trip's highest 
point ("Climbing Kalapatthar with 

Mr. Kimmerer was the hardest thing 
I've ever done, and reaching the 
summit was the high point of the 
trip for me," said Ben) and the 
contrasting 'low' when it was time 
to go down. Steve Kimmerer recalls 
the rollercoaster of emotions during 
the first two weeks of the trip. 
"There were times I really missed 
my family and thought, 'Why am I 
here'?" he remembers. "But as I got 
into trekking, the daily challenges 
became a distraction and suddenly I 
found myself in places where I was in 
complete awe of what was around me." 

Concerns could also be more 
mundane, such as Giancarlo 
Trimarchi's: "I never actually wished 
I was back home," he recalls, "but 
not a day passed when I didn't think 
of the luxuries of home, or the taste 
of a good home-cooked meal." 

But two weeks of community 
service work in Khumjung would 
provide ample time to reflect and 
stabilize after 12 days of surreal 
existence in the mountains. 

With a population of 1,000 
people — tiny by North American 
standards — Khumjung stands as 
a major centre at the base of the 
mountains. It is a prime focus for 
Sir Edmund Hillary and the Hillary 
Foundation. A 40th anniversary 
celebration for the school there 
afforded the SASSIN group an 
opportunity to connect with 
Sir Edmund again and see the 
appreciation in the town for the work 
of his Foundation. (Earlier in the 
trip, the boys had met and spent time 







with another Everest conqueror, 
Canadian Byron Smith, just before 
his ascent.) Khumjung also owes its 
hospital to Hillary and, indirectly, to 
the work the S.A.C. groups have done 
there over the years. 

The effort since 1992 has ranged 
anywhere from collecting garbage to 
hooking up a computer system and 
training the Nepalese to use it. This 
year was no exception. There was 
lots of garbage collection, but also 
roof-painting, fence fixing, cleaning 
Mani stones and chortens, which are 
large rocks and structures that serve 
as religious icons. One surprise 
experienced by Marke Jones was to 
see that the small personal computer 
hooked up in 1998 was still running 
and being used. "When we got that 
system going two years ago, I 
expected that two weeks after we 
left it would be down and never 
come back up again," says Marke. 
"But when we got there they were 
still using it, and that encouraged us 
to add more applications and 
upgrade it some more." Among the 
most important and gratifying such 
applications came with Iain Myrans' 
and Ben Craig's efforts to mount a 
primitive but effective e-mail service 
to connect the school with the world. 
The measure of the group's success 
came late in the trip when a message 
of greetings and congratulations was 
received in Khumjung from 
Headmaster Ted Staunton. 

The whole computerization 
subject was one that Steve 
Kimmerer found particularly 
appealing, as it provides an 
opportunity for S.A.C. to contribute 
to the Khumjung community by 
doing what it does best. "We pride 
ourselves on our technical 
capabilities, and here is an area 
where our efforts are unique, 
appreciated, and distinctly S.A.C.," 
says Steve, destined to lead the 2002 
SASS1N expedition. "Eventually, 

they want to have 10-15 computers 
and I hope that in two years we can 
provide hardware, expertise and 
teaching help that will bring that 
school's computer capabilities right 
into the modern world. I can't think 
of a more appropriate or meaningful 
act of community service for our 
boys to perform." 

While not all the community 
service this year seemed meaningful 
on the surface, the boys quickly 
found out otherwise. Whether it was 
collecting garbage or cleaning 
religious icons, the group was 
constantly aware of the community's 
appreciation. "The community 
service work was definitely 
gratifying," says Giancarlo. "We could 
tell people really appreciated the 
work. Kids and teenagers from 
around the village would come and 
help us out with some of these basic 
jobs that otherwise wouldn't get 
done. One elderly lady even gave us 
some treats. They were probably all 
she had, but she felt she owed us 
something for cleaning up the place 
where she lived. It usually didn't 
seem like work at all." 

Such efforts give boys on all the 
SASSIN trips a different view of 
community service, a view that 
emphasizes results rather than 
work. They can lead to more such 
commitments. Of his 1996 trip to 
Nepal, Neil Ritchie recalls, "The 
community service work we did in 
Khumjung was the reason 1 went 
into International Development 
Studies when I went to Dalhousie 
University. Since then I've done 
similar work at a cancer camp in 
Ontario, and with Oxfam in Halifax. 
I'd love to work for a group like the 
Hillary Foundation in the future." 

The living conditions of many of 
the Nepalese also gave the boys 
occasion to reflect. The residents of 
Khumjung are actually fairly 
comfortable due to the constant 

influx of tourist dollars. But extreme 
poverty and begging children are 
common in large centres like 
Kathmandu. Of his 1996 trip, 
Jason Perrier says some of the living 
conditions he saw in that city 
"were difficult to accept." 

"That trip made me realize I lead 
a sheltered life," he continues, "and 
I think that getting a first-hand view 
of life over there has helped me 
become a bit more self-reliant." 
Josh Lim, a 2000 trekker puts it very 
succinctly. "Nepal changed my view 
of life here in Canada," he confesses. 
"I realize now that I am blessed and 
must share my blessings." 

Without question, the return to 
Canada brought home eight young 
S.A.C. men who were different from 
those who left six weeks earlier. 
Some find themselves appreciating 
bites of food. Some see in their 
mind's eye a view of the mountains 
that dwarfs their very existence. 
Others suddenly found in themselves 
a need to step back from life, 
reassess where they've been and 
where they are going and, simply, 
a need to try to do better. 

Steve Kimmerer looks at the group 
for what they did together, what they 
experienced together and what they 
felt together. "We had high 
expectations of this group," he says. 
"On paper they were impressive. In 
reality they were a tremendously 
co-operative and close-knit collective. 
I think they were different men when 
they returned and their relationships 
not only with each other, but with 
others will benefit. They know they 
went through something unique. You 
can see it when they pass each other 
in the halls. There's a look that says, 
'We did it'. There is an almost visible 
bond that will always connect them. 
They'll never forget this trip. And 
they'll maybe never know quite how 
much it changed them until these 
years are well past." 

Jim McGillivray 













Wordd from the Trekkert 

Here is what boys who made the SASSIN trip this year 
and in past years have to say about the trek of a lifetime. 

Mo&t Surpri&ing Sight 
"During the bus ride through 
Kathmandu, I don't think my eyes 
blinked once because they were glued 
to the poverty surrounding us. Dead 
livestock laying in ditches, families 
sitting on curbs staring blankly at 
me. . .. Although I had talked to 
people who had experienced this, 
nothing could prepare me for these 
sights. I can hardly describe what I 
saw or how it affected me." 
Paul Perrier 

"That animal- 
Josh Lim 

-the yak." 

Low Points 

"If there was a low point it would 
have been the exact moment we 
started to descend Kalapatthar. It 
was at that point that I realized we 
were now on our way home. Being 
up there was as good as it gets in my 
books and I wasn't quite ready to 
give that up." 
Paul Perrier 

"The low point for me was having 
to turn around and go back while 
the rest of the group went on to 
Everest Base Camp and to climb 
Kalapatthar. I don't remember much 
of the trip down, but I remember 
walking down the frozen river with 
tears in my eyes because I had not 
been able to complete the trek with 
the rest of the team." 
Ben Craig 

High Point* 

"For me the high point was finally 
making it up to Kalapatthar with Mr. 
Kimmerer. I'd been sick and that 
climb was one of the hardest things 
I've ever done. The hill seemed to go 
on forever. I made it to the top after 
overcoming a lot of obstacles, and 
I've never been happier." 
Ben Craig 

"The high point for me was 
helping out the Khumjung 
community. It was unforgettable 
and a great experience." 
Josh Lim 

"When I finally got to the top of 
that mountain and just sat there, 
huffing and puffing, I've never felt so 
satisfied with anything in my life. I 
just sat there at 18,200 feet, took in 
the sight of the largest, most 
amazing peaks in the world and ate 
my chocolate — our way of 
celebrating. It was truly amazing!" 
Giancarlo Trimarchi 

"We managed to make it to the 
base of the most famous mountain 
in the world, being the first SASSIN 
group to ever do that. It was as 
barren as any place could be, only 
rock and ice for kilometers in 
any direction." 
John Lyons 

La&t words 

"We would all like to thank the 
school for the incredible support 
they showed in helping us raise the 
necessary funds for the community 
service projects. I can't wait for an 
opportunity to go back!" 
John Lyons 

I suspect that what each person takes from this trip is as unique as the people who 
have participated in it. For me the SASSIN experience is ongoing. With life stripped to its 
bare essentials, and the basic needs of people in full view, it is hard not to reflect on one's 
own existence and to question every aspect of those things that make us appear to be 
different. Not many a day goes by that I don't find myself reflecting on such differences 
The wonderful part comes with the realization that we have much in common. Once our 
basic needs are met, then the joy of family and relationships is more fulfilling than every 
western convenience ever devised. Maybe this is obvious. Perhaps one of the best lessons 
from travel is finding out what we have in common. 

How strange it was that while I was in the mountains I longed for home but when 
at home I longed for the mountains. Is this the "magic of the mountains?" 

Words and pictures will never be enough to share completely this profound experience.

A Wet But Succeddfiul Season 

r*t ijwiPiAc 

This season was one of the most 
successful in the School's 101 year 
history. Led by Skipper Nick 
Abraham, the team completed a 
very wet season undefeated, 
winning over UCC and Ridley 
twice and TCS once. The second 
TCS game was cancelled due to 
wet conditions. The team was a 
truly international one with 
players from Bermuda, Jamaica, 
Antigua, Barbados, United Arab 
Emirates and Canada. The boys 
'gelled' as a group from the opening 
practice and encouraged one 

another during the long and exciting 
matches. The team received 
excellent bowling from first year 
players Zoheb Saleem and Warren 
Chang. Saleem took seven wickets 
in the opening match against UCC 
and from that point on became the 
'workhorse' in terms of the attack. 
Other steady bowling performances 
were put in by Nick Abraham, 
Daniel aka 'Chicken' Chong, 
Matt 'Pilgrim' Fullerton, and 
Josh 'Gummie Bear' Delmas. 
Outstanding batting was by Nick 
Abraham (55 runs — Not Out vs. 

UCC), Josh Delmas (32 runs vs. 
UCC and 24 runs vs. Ridley), 
Scott Simmons (36 runs vs. UCC) 
and Daniel Chong (17 runs vs. 
TCS). The team would like to 
thank Rob McLean, our Australian 
GAP student, for his help all season 
and Jason Bayley for performing 
the difficult job of Scorer. Since the 
team only loses two boys from this 
season's squad, the future of 
Cricket at S.A.C. appears strong.

Members of the First Cricket X1 celebrate 
their win and an undefeated championship 
season. The last time a St. Andrew's team 
won the Cricket title was in 1950 — the only 
other time the Saints won it in 101 years!

David Foster '8g Pursued Dreams with an Unuduai Career Mix 




Let's get this straight right off 
the bat: David Foster '89 combines a 
career as a professional mini-tour 
golfer with crematorium bricklaying. 

Oh, yes, throw in some freelance 
writing on the side. About golf, not 

What's a mini-tour golfer, you 
might ask? It's one step short of the 
pro tour. Mini-tour participants 
engage in a sort of formal betting 
process whereby each player pays an 
entry fee to a tournament — perhaps 
several hundred dollars — and the 
winners split the pot. If you do well, 
you go on to another tournament. 
Pro golfers are made this way. 

And what's a crematorium 
bricklayer? It's actually a rare, very 
specialized and well paid profession 
that takes David all across the 
continent and sometimes the world. 
His father started the family 
business in 1954, taking David on 
as a helper in 1983. Today, David 
builds, rebuilds or repairs the 
furnaces that cemeteries use for 
cremation. He does this for ten or 
fifteen weeks a year, and he enjoys 
it. "It's very gratifying work," he says. 
"I end up building something that 
almost no one else can build, and 
that will fulfill a function that's very 
important to people. And it lets 
me play golf." 

The golfing career for which 
David seems to live began when he 
was a small boy of four or five 
following his parents around on 
what was then King Golf Club near 
Aurora. By the time he was six he 
was playing with a set of cut-down 
clubs. "We lived in the country near 

Schomberg, where my parents still 
live," he says. "There wasn't a lot to 
do, so it was easy for me to gravitate 
towards golf." By Grade 9 at St. 
Andrew's College, he was hooked. 
"I did some track," he recalls, "but by 
then golf was my real love." 

Under Gord (Coach) Ackerman 
the St. Andrew's Senior Golf team 
captured the Independent School 
Tournament Championship seven 
times in nine years from 1983-1991. 
David Foster was Most Valuable 
Player three times, 1987-89, and he 
led the team to two titles in 1988 
and 1989. 

Five years of steady improvement 
during David's formative years at 
S.A.C. produced a golf scholarship to 
the College of Charleston, South 
Carolina, the oldest public 
university in the U.S. Here, the 
schedule was structured such that 
the golfers could finish their 
academic day by noon and practice 
or play golf all afternoon. "From 
1989-91 I played golf virtually every 
day," he says. "It was a very 
supportive atmosphere, but for one 
thing." That one thing was a serious 
personality conflict with the golf 
coach, which led to David's leaving 
the team after two years. "I wasn't 
playing well, I wasn't having much 
success, and I wasn't enjoying it." 

Fortunately, by then he had made 
enough contacts in Charleston to 
continue playing daily. He coupled 
this with a year off school in 1991-92. 
He then started to play well and 
joined the mini-tour circuit. 

But another task was running in 
the background, and it had little to 
do with golf or building furnaces. 
"During my S.A.C. years I had been 
influenced strongly by the English 
courses I took, particularly with 
Mr. Timms and Mr. Ray," David says. 
"I started to value an English degree 
and I began learning how to write." 
And so it was that as an English 

major/golfer/bricklayer at the 
College of Charleston, he began to 
contribute stories to various local 
publications. Before long he was 
selling stories, including book 
reviews for one of the Charleston 
Sunday papers. 






A unique career mix was born. The 
brickwork provides a steady, 
supporting income, the freelance 
writing business (mostly for golf 
magazines, including Golf& Travel 
out of New York) is growing, and 
David has enough success mini- 
touring to continue indulging his 
passion for competitive golf. 

Tm pretty lucky to have a mix of 
skills and luck that allows me to do 
what I love, without having to do 
what I love full-time," David says. 
While that seems like a contrary 
statement, David is quick to point 
out that the life of a pro golfer is not 
as attractive as it might appear from 
a distance. 

"A major 72-hole tournament is 
not fun," he notes. "It's life on the 
road with week-longs bouts of very 
heavy pressure, and very little 
satisfaction in what you're doing." 

Very little satisfaction?? 

David explains. "Ask recreational 
golfers: golf is a game where you're 
rarely if ever satisfied with the way 
you've played. You feel you could 
always have done better. This feeling 
does not go away even as you 
approach the professional standard. 
In fact, it intensifies. Golfers can 
make a pile of money by placing well 
in a major tournament, but unless 
they play well, they're not very 
fulfilled. And they have to play very 
well to stay on the tour, which can 
incur costs of $2,000 a week or more." 

The satisfaction of writing a 
sellable story or building a useful 
structure now starts to make sense. 
"Even if I made the pro tour I don't 
think I'd play any more than I do 
now, which is about 15 weeks a year," 
he says. "I wouldn't be happy." 

What would be ideal? "I love golf," 
he says. "And my writing is now 
beginning to focus on the 
architecture of golf courses, about 
which a lot can be written. At this 
point, that is my ideal combo. And 
fortunately, the brickwork is my 
safety valve for hopefully making this 

These days, David divides his time 
between Charleston, his parents' 
home outside of Schomberg, 
New York City and mini-tour dates 
in Vermont, Hawaii, Bermuda and 
various other U.S. locales. A family is 
not yet in the offing. ("Women love 
that I'm a golfer and a writer; they 
don't love that I'm away 30 weeks of 
the year.") He's looking for a more 
permanent base he can call home 
where he can golf and write. 
("New York is not a golf centre 
and Charleston offers too many 
distractions.") Southern Ontario is 
looking good, particularly the 
Collingwood area, currently a 
popular destination for a number of 
his S.A.C. classmates. 

These classmates are still his best 
friends. "Rarely a day goes by, 
particularly up here, when I'm not 
in touch with one of them," he says. 
"Nothing I do in Canada is far from 
an Andrean." 

David Foster comes across as a 
thoughtful young man with well 
considered dreams and an eclectic 
but fulfilling lifestyle. 

But wait. There's more. "Did I 
tell you I collect encyclopedias?" 
he asks, a new passionate light 
in his eyes. This explains the 
innumerable book boxes and the 
antique-bookstore odour around 
the house. "I get them off e-Bay and 
in my travels. I hope soon to have 
a collectors' set from every decade of 
the twentieth century." 

"Big thing I need now is a 
26-volume edition of the Oxford 
English Dictionary. Know anyone 
who has one...?" 

Jim McGillivray 

Ted Boswell '55 has spent 
forty years in the forestry 
business since joining 
E.B. Eddy in 1960. By 1982 
he was the company's 
Sr. Vice-President Pulp/Forestry 
and Wood Products, a short 
stop before he was named 
President and CEO in 1988. 
In 1997 he added Chairman 
of the Board to his portfolio. 
An active leader in industry 
issues, he has also been 
Chairman of the Board for 
both the Canadian Pulp and 
Paper Association and the 
Ontario Forest Industries 
Association. But is this all- 
business bio the only of this 
forest industry leader? 
Not since he was appointed 
Chairman of the Nature 
Conservancy of Canada, 
an organization dedicated to 
guarding delicate lands 

from... the forest industry. 
This article from The Globe & 
Mail's Report on Business 
outlines how a forest industry 
powerhouse can also be 
on the side of the trees. 

It reads like Rocket Richard 
playing for the Leafs, or maybe 
Brigitte Bardot joining the seal hunt. 
Until his retirement last year, 
Ted Boswell was president and 
C.E.O. of E.B. Eddy Forest Products 
Ltd. Today he is Chairman of the 
Board of Trustees for the Nature 
Conservancy of Canada, an 
organization dedicated to buying 
ecologically sensitive lands and 
saving them from chain saws, 
strip mining or strip malls. 

But this is no late-life conversion. 
There was no road to Damascus for 
Ted Boswell. "I am a forester," he 
says, "and most foresters got into the 
business because they had a great 

feeling for nature and ecology — 
though the word was never heard 
when I was at school." 

Still, at first glance, it's hard to 
reconcile Boswell's corporate 
background with his new role. For 
most of its history, Canada's pulp and 
paper industry has been a notorious 
polluter. Mention the name 
E.B. Eddy to long-time residents 
of Ottawa and the Northern Ontario 
town of Espanola. and the first thing 
that they usually cite isn't the 
company's costly and extensive 
cleanup initiatives in recent years. 
It's the smell, the foul rotten-egg 
smell that emanated from local mills 
tin- decades. That and the dust. 

You also have to remember that 
when Ted Boswell took over as 
E.B. Eddy's CEO in November. 1 988, 
the company was still licking its 
wounds from one of the longest 
environmental court battles in 
Ontario history. E.B. Eddy had laced 

l!*)**? 1 J 











10 charges stemming from a 1983 
spill from the Espanola mill that 
killed an estimated 120,000 fish in 
the Spanish River. Nine of the 
charges were dismissed. But in 
March, 1988, an Ontario Provincial 
Court judge fined E.B. Eddy $10,000 
after it pleaded guilty on one count 
under the federal Fisheries Act. 

Ted Boswell doesn't exactly fit the 
suit of an environmentalist either. At 
age 63, he still looks like a logger. 
Husky, solid and well over six feet 
tall, he's clearly a man neither 
troubled by niceties nor inclined to 
mince words; a man you'd expect to 
be most at home in a lumber camp. 

Yet Boswell has charged into a 
new role as a new breed of 
environmental activist who is ready 
and able to work with corporations 
as partners rather than adversaries. 
Call it the "businessification" of 
environmentalism. It's a very 
deliberate departure from the 
confrontational activism that drove 
the environmental reforms of the 
last three decades. The inevitable 
question is: Is it for real? 

Boswell has garnered support from 
some surprising quarters. "The 
environmental movement is 
differentiating, like any market. It's 
becoming more niche-oriented," says 
Ken Ogilvie, executive director of 
Toronto-based Pollution Probe. The 
movement, he says, has to adopt 
other tactics besides conflict to 
adapt to changing political and 
economic realities. "In the '60s and 
70s conflict definitely had its role 
because we had to get a new system 
in place." 

Those changing realities are 
sobering. Even left-leaning 
governments are increasingly 
unwilling or unable to set strong 
environmental policy. Yet there are 
opportunities as well. More and more 
corporations are at least preaching 
social responsibility, though it may 
be little more than PR in some cases. 

Boswell acknowledges many of 
those corporations have been 
pushed. Although he dislikes 

advocacy politics, he admits that the 
values now included in forest 
management — like protecting 
wildlife and preserving ecologically 
sensitive sites — got there through 
public pressure. 

But in his own case, Boswell says 
his commitment to conservation 
grew directly out of his 43-year 
career at E.B. Eddy, beginning as a 
logger and finishing as a hard-driving 
CEO. As a forestry student at the 
University of New Brunswick, 
Boswell worked the river drives in 
Northern Quebec during the 
summer, shepherding logs along the 
Gatineau River to the E.B. Eddy 
mills. He joined the company 
full-time when he graduated in 1960. 
He did growth-and-yield studies and 
forest management for the 
company's woodlands division, and 
graduated to logging operations, 
where he ran a logging camp. 

Boswell picked up an MBA 
en route, and worked his way up 
to woodlands manager. He was 
appointed vice-president of forestry 
and wood products in 1972, after 
E.B. Eddy bought its operations 
in Espanola. 

He's never seen any fundamental 
conflict between his business and 
environmentalism. "As a forester in 
this country you are trained to think 
in 70-year cycles," he says. "It may 
not fit with the modern corporation 
or with an investment community 
worried about what will happen in 
the next quarter, but it sure fits from 
a strategic point of view. And it sure 
fits at the Conservancy. Every 
purchase we make I wonder: "What 
will that be like in 70 years?" 

The Conservancy was founded in 
1962. But it gained its first real 
national prominence last July when, 
at an auction in Cleveland, it outbid 
several U.S. interests — including an 
investment banker, a winery and an 
eco-tourism company — to purchase 
Middle Island in Lake Erie for 
$1.3 million. 

Middle Island is south of Pelee 
Island and it is Canada's most 

southerly point. But it had been 
privately owned by a U.S. family for 
decades. The 18-hectare island is a 
unique ecosystem that is home to a 
number of threatened or endangered 
species, including the Lake Erie 
water snake, the black-crowned 
night heron and Canada's only native 
citrus tree, the hop tree. The 
Conservancy plans to transfer the 
island to the federal government, 
which will turn it into a national 

The Conservancy holds up the 
Middle Island purchase as a model 
for its strategy of protecting 
ecologically sensitive areas either by 
buying them outright, or by 
negotiating donations or protective 
legal easements with landowners. 
In those cases, the Conservancy pays 
a certain sum for the land to be 
managed in perpetuity, with 
restrictions on certain activities. 
The easement then becomes a part 
of the land's deed and is carried 
with it. An easement might, for 
example, restrict the size of 
buildings on a property, or forbid 
hunting or logging on it. 

The money is raised through 
partnerships with industry and 
government, as well as donations 
from individuals and foundations. 
The Middle Island purchase involved 
Parks Canada, Suncor Energy Inc., 
the International Fund for Animal 
Welfare and the Canadian 
Wildlife Service. 

The exact arrangements and 
partners vary from one property 
to another. In May, for instance, 
Amoco Canada Petroleum Cos. 
donated 11,600 hectares of mineral 
interests in the Whaleback area, 
160 km southwest of Calgary, to the 
Conservancy. The government of 
Alberta plans to create a 28,000 
hectare park in the area by 2004. 
Boswell admits that sometimes the 
Conservancy just arranges to buy 
land and worries about the money 

Since its foundation, the 
Conservancy has protected more 




















than 800 properties covering 640,000 
hectares, an area 15% larger than 
Prince Edward Island. According to 
Boswell, the Conservancy's land 
acquisitions for 1999 will be up 
at least 80% from 1998. The 
organization's total budget for its 
financial year ended Oct. 31, 1999, 
was $11.6 million. Boswell would like 
to see it grow to 10 times that size. 

In working toward that goal, 
Boswell's environmental track record 
as CEO of E.B. Eddy adds credibility 
to his pitches to corporations 
and governments — and even 
environmentalists. A year after 
he took over as E.B. Eddy's CEO in 
1988, the Espanola mill had already 
met proposed new Ontario standards 
for discharges of chlorinated organic 
compounds. That was the result of 
years of effort by the company to 
change its pulp-bleaching process. 
But Boswell kept pushing ahead. 

"I really believe the environmental 
regulations as they were introduced 
in the 70s and '80s didn't cost us 
nearly as much because we had 
already done them or planned them 
into the process before that," Boswell 
recalls. "We knew oxygen bleaching 
would be good for the environment. 
But it wasn't just driven by the 
environment. It was driven by 
economics. It was truly a sustainable 
development icon for us." 

In 1992, E.B. Eddy won 
unaccustomed praise from some 
environmentalists for being the first 
forest company to publish a detailed 
report on its efforts to promote 
sustainable development. As Boswell 
described it at the time, it was a 
"warts and all" assessment of 
E.B. Eddy's forest management 
practices and pollution control 
initiatives. It also set out specific 
targets for the future. 

Boswell's efforts went beyond the 
company. Rick Findlay is currently 
director of the Ottawa office of 
Pollution Probe. But under the 
Ontario governments of Liberal 
Premier David Peterson and NDP 
Premier Bob Rae, Findlay was 

director of the Secretariat to the 
Premier's Round Table on the 
Environment and the Economy. 
Peterson invited Boswell to join, 
and Findlay says he was "a hugely 
impressive resource at the table. 
His advice was very practical and 
realistic and very progressive." 

One of the big topics discussed 
was setting a target for reducing 
energy consumption in the economy 
as a whole. The initial numbers 
discussed were in the range of 1% to 
5%. Findlay recalls that as the group 
started to gravitate toward the lower 
numbers, "Ted weighed in saying if 
his company didn't meet a more 
challenging target they'd be out 
of business. It was a timely and 
important message — that this was 
doable, and important and also 

"Ted was an anomaly among his 
colleagues," says Paul Griss, the 
former executive director of the 
Canadian Nature Federation, and 
co-ordinator of the New Directions 
Group, and informal forum for 
business and environmental leaders. 
"He was probably the last CEO 
who was a forester, and one of the 
first guys to take environmental 
issues seriously." 

Despite kudos like that, and some 
clear substantive accomplishments, 
many environmentalists still don't 
buy into Boswell's business-oriented 
approach as the only way to work. 
Tim Gray, executive director of the 
Wildlands League and another 
participant at the Ontario Round 
Table, described Boswell as "the last 
of the lumber barons." He says he 
still finds Boswell's dismissal of 
government advocacy and initiatives 
troubling. "Eighty-five per cent of the 
province of Ontario is public land. 
If he doesn't see a place for the 
public to be involved in how it 
would be used, that is a difficulty." 

But Boswell has both practical and 
philosophical objections to that 
criticism. First, the Conservancy's 
businesslike approach of simply 
buying ecologically sensitive 

properties may be the only way to 
operate in southern Canada, where 
there aren't huge tracts of public 
land left that can be designated as 
provincial and national parks. 

Defending the Conservancy's 
non-advocacy stance, Boswell 
becomes measured and precise: 
"Non-advocacy is the strength of 
the Nature Conservancy. We are 
not against anything. Corporations 
and governments and individuals 
really respect that." 

"We're not there to stop mining or 
stop drilling or stop anything," he 
adds. "Advocacy costs a lot of money, 
and doesn't necessarily get the job 
done, because in an advocacy 
situation somebody else always 
has to do it. Here, we do it. We 
just bloody well do it. And we don't 
create enemies in doing it." 

It's also a question of timing. 
"We don't have very much time," he 
says, emphatically thumping a thick 
forefinger on the table. "These pieces 
of land in our country aren't going to 
be available at the next millennium." 

So, as direct and combative as 
Boswell can be by nature, he's trying 
not to get sucked into political 
debates. "We don't care who our 
partners are, we don't care who gets 
the credit. Future generations are 
not going to look back and say, 
'Company X did this just to get a 
headline in a newspaper.' They're 
gonna say, 'Look at this beautiful 
piece of land we have.' They'll forget 
about the Nature Conservancy, and 
the corporation and the government 
and they'll just say, 'This is mine."

The Televidionjfpject of) a Millennium 
















G ordon Henderson's company, 
90th Parallel Productions, does an 
astonishing quantity of documentary 
filmmaking and specialized videos. 
They do it with three employees. 
How? With freelancers, of course. 
A small army of them: cameramen, 
film editors, directors, writers and 
producers. This is an industry of 
freelancers. Frequently, Gordon will 
find one who can fill several of these 
roles at once, and Andrew Gregg 
does this admirably. Andy is usually 
writer, director and producer of films 
he is involved in. Yes, Andy is 
a freelancer, but he works closely 
enough with Gordon at 90th Parallel 
to just about be called a partner. 

Gordon '69 and Andy '81 graduated 
from St. Andrew's College in very 
different eras. They met in 1996 and 
immediately did three projects 
together: a CBC "Life and Times" 
episode on Susan Aglukark, 
a documentary special with CTV 
anchor Lloyd Robertson and a video of 
profiles for the Canadian Giller 
literary prizes, done in conjunction 
with Bravo. St. Andrew's College came 
up only by chance as a result of a 
conversation about "A Day in the Life 
of St. Andrew's", 90th Parallel's superb 
prize-winning video of St. Andrew's 
produced by Gordon in 1991. 

The project that brings them 
together now is the Canadian 
Broadcasting Corporation's mammoth 
Canada: A People's History. 
Otherwise known as "The Millennium 
Project" this is CBC's stated 
contribution to the millennium. It is a 
story that begins 12,000 years ago and 
continues through 30 hours of prime- 
time television viewing, documenting 
Canada's history until 1990 through 
the eyes of those who lived it. 

A $25 million enterprise, it will be 
broadcast Sunday nights in French 
and English beginning in the fall of 

Andrew Gregg in a photo taken last year while on a film shoot 
near the hamlet of Clyde River, at the northern end of Baffin Island. 
Camping at Sam Ford Fjord, the location was about eight hours out 
of town by snowmobile. ' .^_^Kr~ 

0. It will also be converted into 
library and home video sets and 
permanent Web pages. The video sets 
will be distributed to every school and 
library in Canada — a $2 million price 
tag in itself. CBC says the project "will 
create the first magisterial history of 
Canada for the television age — a 
legacy for the millennium. Produced 
over four years, with seven camera 
crews, 15 directors and more than 
70 historians, Canada: A People's 
History, with its great themes and 
wide-ranging human dramas, will 
be an entertaining, moving and 
thought-provoking experience." 

Part of a small team of Senior 
Producers reporting to the Head of 
the CBC Television Documentary 
Unit, Mark Starowicz, Gordon will 
produce all 15 of the two-hour 
episodes, working with each director 
along the way. A long way removed 
from St. Andrew's College of the 1960s 
("All those old guys who just retired 
were hired while I was there."), 
Gordon is president and executive 
producer of 90th Parallel, and co- 
owner of ViewPost Productions Ltd., 
a Toronto post-production house in 
the same building as 90th. 
He comes by these leading positions 
honestly, with a journalism degree 
and varied accomplishments in TV and 
production: parliamentary 
correspondent for Global Television 
News, documentary producer at CBC's 
The Journal, and senior producer of 
W5 on CTV. His list of high-profile TV 
documentaries and assorted video 
productions fills two pages. Many 
were award-winners and nominees 
at Gemini Awards shows and 
international festivals. In their spare 
time, he and wife Pam have raised 
a boy and two girls, now at or 
approaching university age. 

Andy's initial contribution to 
A People's History is to write 

and direct the premiere episode, 
which will air in October. His history 
since S.A.C. is shorter and more 
travelled, but includes three Gemini 
nominations and numerous 
international awards. Also a 
journalism graduate, he spent a year 
freelancing in Ottawa followed by two 
years in Whitehorse, Yukon writing 
for a local paper, then acting as a 
field producer for Northern Native 
Broadcasting Yukon company that 
eventually became The Aboriginal 
People's TV Network. In 1989 he 
moved to Toronto to freelance, but 
ended up working for CBC, producing 
spots for such flagships as 
The Journal, Prime Time News and 
The National Magazine. He worked 
on numerous documentaries, but 
also spent time doing daily news and 
news specials. He left CBC in 1996, 
this time to truly freelance and has 
since divided his time between 90th 
Parallel, CBC, CTV, Discovery 
Network and Bravo. He and his wife, 
CBC producer Leanne Stepnow, have 
a one-year-old daughter, Charlotte. 

A People's History is without 
question the most monumental 
broadcasting project either man has 
undertaken. Gordon's job as Senior 
Producer is as a sort of chief 
operating officer. He contracts the 
producers and directors such as Andy 
to do the nuts-and-bolts filmmaking. 
He also meets frequently at a higher 
level with what he refers to as the 
"Cabinet." This is the group of Senior 
Producers under Starowicz who must 
ensure that writing, directing and 
filming guidelines are in place so that 
all 30 hours of the project exhibit a 
seamless continuity of style. Andy, as 
director, engages the cameramen, 
historical researchers and other 
support staff who will go with him 
into the field to film the first episode. 
This opening segment focuses on 







pre-history and the first contact of 
natives with whites up to 1800. 
As such, the job has meant frequent 
travel to remote filming locations 
to speak with experts, make sense 
of oral history, trudge through the 
bush with cameramen filming 
migrating caribou, and stage dramatic 

Both history buffs and lovers of 
the North, Gordon and Andy are 
particularly excited about the first 
episode, which takes place in 
locations all across the country, 
from Vancouver to Nunavut, Manitoba, 
Ontario, Eastern Quebec and 
Newfoundland. Both men are excited 
by the style in which the show will be 
filmed, though both admit that they 
are not working from a template or 
a model. "Nothing this big has ever 
been produced in this style before," 
says Gordon. "We're taking 
documentary filming techniques 
into dramatic action." 

"For example, in drama, the 
camera always knows what's going 
to happen next; one shot is made with 
the next shot in mind. However, 
documentaries film 'as it happens': 
the camera doesn't know what's going 
to happen next. We film drama as if 
a documentary camera shot it. 
The effect is quite different from 
either form." 

Early programs in the series will be 
particularly dependent on this 
technique as they deal with a time 
before photographs or film. Scenes 

are re-created dramatically with 
characters such as Jacques Cartier 
or Iroquois Chief Donnacona acting 
scenes as described in their own 
words or according to historical 
records turned up by CBC 
researchers. The outdoor scenes 
are crisp, breathtaking and rigorously 
natural, as though a camera crew 
showed up in Gaspe in 1535. 

Though historically prominent 
names like Cartier and Cook are 
tossed around in CBC's promotional 
literature, Andy says that the focus in 
his show is not on the oft-told deeds 
of the legendary figures, but on the 
minute struggles of ordinary people of 
the time. "If we have a choice 
between filming a prominent 
historical figure or some guy on the 
ship he came on," says Andy, "we'll 
go with the guy on the ship if his story 
is more compelling." 

Andy is clearly excited by his work. 
"I really wanted to do this episode on 
early Native and Canadian history," he 
says. "Before the whites came here 
there were 18,000,000 people living on 
North American soil. They spoke 
more than 50 languages in Canada 
alone — more than in all of eastern 
Europe. There are countless 
compelling stories to be told between 
natives and whites, and in particular 
native people before the whites came. 
This is what the first hour of the first 
segment is about — North America 
before the whites." 

And how does a teen career at 
St. Andrew's prepare one to air the 
biggest television project ever 
undertaken by CBC? Gordon claims 
it's too long ago to remember, though 
his 1969 yearbook caption claims his 
ambition is "to write a book on my 
five years at S.A.C." 

Andy is more philosophic. "I went 
from a kid at a small public school to 


a young man at St. Andrew's, where I 
managed to end up as a Prefect," he 
recalls. "There were a lot of obstacles 
to overcome on that journey, and 
overcoming them taught me much. 
Today I still spend a great deal of my 
time overcoming obstacles." 

"For some reason I specifically 
remember Mr. Myrans' history classes. 
No, not as an obstacle, but 
as a lesson in putting ideas across. He 
put those classes together like 
a research project. Every class was 
like an essay. You constantly asked, 
what do I need or not need to tell this 
story. Man, that's what I do here every 

And of course, Gordon is quick 
to point out that Stan Macfarlane's 
French classes prepared them for 
meetings he must have in French 
and for "well. . . other things too." 

Gordon and Andy's premier 
episode of A People's History, is 
broken into two hours, "The First 
People" and "Contact". Both are at 
the fine-cutting stage. Soon it will 
be finished. But in this freelancer's 
world they are already working on 
other films. Whether any will be as 
big or significant as 4 People's 
History only time will tell. But 
there is a good chance that their 
St. Andrew's connection, similar 
interests and complementary skills 
will keep them working as a team for 
a long time. 

The first episode of Canada: 
A People's History, airs on CBC 
on Sunday, October 15 at 8 p.m.

I consider myself very fortunate to be Headmaster of 
this wonderful school. Not only am I provided with 
housing at the end of this quad, but the position of 
Headmaster comes with some additional perks. I have my 
very own cadet escort; 
I have my very own 
piper; and most 
importantly, when 
travelling abroad or 
shopping in Toronto, 
I have my very own 
body guards. Thank 
you, gentlemen, for 
all of your assistance 
this year. 

It has been a fun year, by 
and large, made so by the personality 'quirks' of our boys. 

Attending chapel each morning, I'm never sure what to 
expect; what hair style Kevin Richards will be wearing; 
what new muscles Nick Middleton will have; and how 
many earrings Gerren Hopkin will be trying to conceal. 

It's also been fun saving my money so that I could bid 
on Forbes Lilford's stereo; attempting to match wits with 
Ryan Brandham - unsuccessfully; trying to decipher the 
email messages on the Cricket team's conference and 
helping to keep the Scottish wool industry in business by 
ordering kilts for the Manigats. 

In this my third year as Headmaster of St. Andrew's, I 
have come to appreciate the ebb and flow of boarding 
school life. 

I realize now, that there are going to be peaks and 
troughs, but I am comforted by the fact that things 
normally end up well in the end. 

(From left) "Headmaster's Piper, Cadet escort and bodyguards" 
are thanked by Ted Staunton on Prize Day. 

We have had peaks and troughs this year. Mark Twain 
once said, "never let your schooling interfere with your 
education", but surely the secondary school years are the 
best time for life lessons to be learned. Renowned poet 

John Keats wrote in 
1818; "In Endymion, I 
leaped headlong into 
the sea, and thereby 
have become better 
acquainted with the 
surroundings, the 
quicksands, and the 
rocks, than if I had 
stayed upon the green 
shore, and piped a 
silly pipe, and took tea and 

comfortable advice." 

Winston Churchill stated; "While one person hesitates 
because he feels inferior, the other is busy making 
mistakes and becoming superior". 

We all make mistakes - the trick is to learn from them. 

I would like to end the school year in the way that I 
began it. At the Opening Assembly in September, I 
announced that the theme for the year would be "PRIDE". 
I encouraged the boys to take pride in themselves, in 
their families, with their academic work and in their 
extra-curricular activities. Ladies and Gentleman, they 
have done this, and I am "Proud" of their efforts this year. 
Please give our student body a hearty round of applause 
for their efforts in all areas this year. 

There is a well-known Latin phrase, "Non Nobis Solum" 
(Not for Ourselves Alone) which I think describes 
accurately the spirit of the school this year. 







Board of Governors Chairman Brian Armstrong '61 at the 
101st Prize Day. The School held separate Middle School 
and Upper School ceremonies this year for the first time. 

Examples of St. Andrew's Community Service 
efforts include: 

The work of students Adam Brander, Ben Craig, Tom 
Haney, Josh Lim, John Lyons, Iain Myrans, Paul Perrier and 
Giancarlo Trimarchi and two faculty members, Marke Jones 
and Steve Kimmerer, who participated on SASSIN TREK 
2000. They worked at 12,600 ft. on various community 
service projects such as; repairing fences, restoring local 
religious icons, assisting schools with the installation of 
email and working with local teams on the restoring of 
water supplies. Congratulations to this hard working group 
who represented the school so well in Nepal. 

As you probably know, the entire Andrean community 
played a very significant role in the successful Ontario 
Special Olympics 2000 Spring Games hosted by York 
Region. 149 boys and ten staff members contributed over 
1200 volunteer hours to this marvellous event. 
Congratulations to all of these hard-working individuals, 
particularly Jamie Near, Tom Long, Mike Craig, Nick 
Weedon and Jordan Ross on the student side and Mr. 
Mark Service, Mrs. Carol Rose-Kudelka, Ms. Antonia 
Venters, Mrs. Jane Bedard, and Mr. Dave Currah on the 
staff side. 

The efforts of Mr. Service should receive special 
mention particularly with the St. Andrew's College 
Outreach Committee and the St. Lucia Summer Program. 

Mrs. Wendy Pries is to be commended on revitalising 
community service at St. Andrew's. She formed a council 
with representatives from every grade who organized, 
promoted and led many volunteer projects in the Aurora 
and Newmarket area. Some of the projects were: running 
bingos at the Newmarket Health Centre, tutoring at 
Aurora Heights Public School, cleaning up Machell Park, 
participation in the United Way Leadership program and 
fundraising for numerous volunteer organizations. 

Our Duke of Edinburgh Program is alive and well, 
thanks to Mr. Mark Service and Capt. Brian McCue. Gold 

medals in this demanding contest have been won by 
Michael Craig and Paul Perrier; Silver to Andrew Cronin 
and Bronze to Jarryd Stock, Joseph Rothwell, Nathan 
Rothwell, Stuart Manchee, Alessandro Lupo, Christopher 
McFarlane, Jordan Ross, John Maclver, Brendon 
McCullough, Trevor Fahlgren and Mitch Myers. 

It is difficult to judge the academic record of the 
School without going outside the School. The success of 
our graduates, our University placements and our results 
on external exams are really the only objective 
barometers of academic health. 

I am very pleased to report that this year's Graduating 
Class, numbering 74 boys, have received over $125,000 in 
scholarship offers to Universities and Colleges. We expect 
more to arrive in the next few days. 59 boys are remaining 
in Ontario to attend University; three are attending other 
Universities in Canada; ten boys, led by our Head Prefect, 
Alain Chicoine, who will be attending Princeton, are 
headed to the United States; one boy is attending 
Community College and one is taking the year off to play 
hockey. Arts, Business/Commerce, Engineering, and 
Science respectively are the chosen fields of this year's 
class. While all of us were expecting this class to do well, 
we have some exceptional students in lower grades who 
are making their mark in National and International 
competitions. Chris Chui has been awarded the 
prestigious Rensselaer Medal Scholarship for his first 
overall ranking in mathematics and science. He was 
selected to receive the US$10,000 annual award from 
over 29,000 participants. His award will begin in 2001. 

In the highly competitive mathematics competitions 
operated by the University of Waterloo, the St. Andrew's 
College team of Adrian Chan, Ricky Luk, and Hyun Do 
Kim ranked 111th nationally out of 871 teams. 

In the University of Toronto Biology competition 
Andrew Flavelle Martin finished 38th out of 4996 
students, earning himself the title of National 
Biology Scholar. 

You will hear later in the proceedings that Andrew 
Cronin and Michael Charlebois have won 1st place in the 

On the 50th Anniversary of his graduation from St. 
Andrew's College. Chief Justice R. Roy McMurtry 'SO was 
guest speaker at the 101st Prize Day of the College. 



The Brooks Cup was presented to the best senior 
debater and this year's Co-President of the Debating 
Society Andrew Flavelle Martin by Bill Skinner '47, a 
former Housemaster and teacher at S.A.C. The Brooks 
Cup was given to the School by Mr. Skinner's mother. 

Eighth Annual E2 Management Corporation Conservation 
Video Contest for their video, entitled "Millennium 
GWS - Solutions for a Warming Planet." This is the 
second time in three years that boys from Mr. Galajda's 
class have won the award. 

Ivor Skala in Grade 12 was chosen as the senior 
co-winner of the Ross Morrow Short Story Writing 
Competition organized by the Conference of Independent 
School Teachers of English. 

Mr. Rupert Ray reports that this was a banner year for 
Debating, the most successful in the last five years. 
As host of the Fulford League Tournament this year, 
students from 22 schools experienced, first hand, 
SAC.'s beautiful campus and outstanding hospitality. 
Andrew Flavelle Martin and Olivier and Ali Manigat 
distinguished themselves in local and national 
competitions with Ali debating in French at the Nationals 
in Thunder Bay. He finished 8th in the country. 

Mr. Ray, our highly esteemed debating coach, has been 
appointed to coach the team that will represent Canada 
at the World Schools' Debating Championship next 
February, in Johannesburg, South Africa. 

Drama continues to play a vital role in the lives of 
many S.A.C. boys. Anyone who was involved in West Side 
Story, Billy Budd and Focus, please stand up. 
See what I mean! 

And what a resource we have in Mr. Scoular, Mr. McGee 
and Mr. & Mrs. Clements! 

Ryan Brandham receives the Laidlaw Trophy from S.A.C. 
Governor Ian Howey '87. The Laidlaw is awarded to the 
graduating student winning the most points for his clan 
over his last two years at the School. Ryan was later 
announced as the winner of the Macdonald Medal, the 
School's most prestigious award.

best showing ever, and Bronze medalists at our own 
MacPherson Tournament. Let me take this 
opportunity to commend the Coaches, the Captains 
and the rest of First Team Hockey for persevering 
during a difficult season. They coped with a lot of 
adversity this year. 

• 1st Rugby won the York Region, qualifying for 
O.F.S.A.A. and during that very challenging 
tournament they reached the semi-finals.

Today we say goodbye to three members of the faculty 

and two members of staff. 

Ms. Jane Kravchenko has been a popular teacher of 
English, Drama and Physical Education and a very 

only a short period of time. She is a very knowledgeable 
teacher of Geography and a committed Coach of Skiing 
and Badminton. Best of luck, Clare, to you and Adam. 

Mr. Tom Napier, our Desktop Specialist, is leaving St. 
Andrew's for another position in the computer field. 
Working behind the scenes, Tom has been a key 
ingredient in the successful operation of the computer 
network at S.A.C. We wish him well in the next 
phase of his career. 

Mr. Stephen Penton is leaving us for other pastures 
after a very active year assisting with the supervision of 
Macdonald House, teaching a grade 8 English class, 
coaching football, directing plays and assisting with trips 
and the weekend program. His positive attitude and 
infectious enthusiasm for all he does will be missed. 





capable Coach of Volleyball and Tennis for five years at 
S.A.C.. Her popularity is due, no doubt, to the dedication 
she displays to her students and the enthusiasm she 
demonstrates for the various sports which she coaches. 
Jane has decided to spend more time with husband 
Peter and their son, Satchel. We wish them all the very 
best in the future. 

After only one year on the faculty, Clare Kowaltschuk 
has decided to accompany her husband to Japan where 
they will teach for the next two years. Possessing many of 
the same attributes as her sister Jane Kravchenko, Clare 
has made a very good impression on this community in 

Stephen is to be married this summer so we send best 
wishes from the entire Andrean community. 

Rob McLean, our friendly GAP student from Australia, 
is leaving us after two terms to join Rosseau Lake College 
in Muskoka. Rob made numerous friends during his short 
stay and this was due to his willingness to tutor boys and 
help coach as many teams as possible. I am particularly 
grateful to Rob for his invaluable help with this year's 
Cricket team. 

We also wish Luigi Oliveri on our janitorial staff for the 
past six years the very best in his new job. 

I Alain Chicoine, Head Prefect for 1999-2000, delivers the 

^V valedictory for his class. He left the podium to a standing 

ovation from the hundreds of students and guests. 

The C. Vincent Massey Medal for Excellence in the Arts 
was presented to Boris Kholodov '00 by Vice Chairman 
of the Board David Rea 'S3. The Massey Medal was 
named by the School to replace the discontinued 
Lt. Governor's Silver Medal for the Arts. 






Jarryd Stock gave the 
valedictory for the 
grade eight graduation 
to the Upper School. 
The Middle School 
awards ceremony was 
held for the first time 
during the morning of 
Prize Day. 

I would like to take a minute 
to compliment this year's 
Prefect body. My memories of 
them will be the way they 
strolled into my office each 
Thursday, as if they owned the 
place. Sir, with all due 
respect, do this; Sir, I don't 
mean to offend you but, do 
this; Sir, we have a party on 
Friday night - any chance 
the School could extend us 
some credit? I mean, is that 
the way you remember your 
relationship with your 
school Principal? 
These meetings are my most 
enjoyable times. To this, Alain 
Chicoine would probably say, "Get a life, Sir." However, 
we've had fun and that's the name of the game. 

Speaking of Alain Chicoine, I would like to say, in your 
presence, what an excellent ambassador for S.A.C. he has 
been. What do you think Class of 2000? We'll all miss Al's 
calm leadership abilities and wish him well at Princeton. 

In your presence, I would like to acknowledge the 
efforts of the Board of Governors, under the direction of 
Mr. Brian Armstrong. A strong Board is synonymous with 
a strong school and we're fortunate to have such 
dedicated volunteers. 

To the Ladies' Guild members, particularly President 
Tina Rogers and Vice-President, Geri Pike, and their 
extremely hard-working executive - Thank you for a 
fabulous year. 

To the faculty and staff, thank you sincerely for your 
hard work and support all year. 

A special word of thanks to the Leadership Team at the 
School. Mr. Walden, newly appointed Assistant 
Headmaster, Ms. Angela Phillips, Ms. Beth McKay, 
Mr. Jim Herder, Mr. Struan Roberton, Mr. Aubrey Foy, 
Mr. Paul Bedard, Mr. Michael Hanson, Mr. Greg Dominato 
and Mrs. Gayle Petri. 

A day such as this requires a two-month planning 
schedule. My thanks to Gregory Dominato, Maria Pilieci, 
Edna Collins, Michelle Mix, Beth McKay and Gayle Petri 
for a superb job in organizing this complex event.

The 2nd Annual Ladies' Guild Golf Tournament was 
held on 'sunny 1 June 14th at Spring Lakes Golf and 
Country Club with twice as many enthusiastic golfers 
participating this year. The winning group at 1 under par 
was: Margie Abbott, Beth McKay, Jolanta McKay and 
Patricia Monaghan. First-time golfer Edna Collins, sank 
an awesome putt while ace golfer Margie Abbott won 
longest drive and closest to the pin. In total, a 
spectacular $1000 was raised for the SAC Chapel Flower 
Fund. Our appreciation goes out to all who supported this 
fun-filled day. Look for the tournament winners plaque in 
the Guild Shop! 

Guild and Life Members, staff, and friends of S.A.C. 
were served champagne and strawberries at the 
Mad Hatter's Tea Party which was the theme for this 
year's Annual General Meeting held in the 
Great Hall on May 17th. 

Incoming President, Geri Pike, Queen of our Hearts, 
thanked Tweedledee and Tweedledum, alias 
Wendy Marshall and Joanne Stock, for a highly successful 
year in the Guild Shop in the face of a challenging 
computerization of the entire operation. Nanette Parent 
and her many "Alice" volunteers raised over $2700 during 
the poinsettia and craft sale last November. 
The "Out of Africa" extravaganza in February netted an 
unparalleled $59,000! This was due in part to the 
breath-taking live auction bids by Mike Thompson and 
the successful Peggy Reininger for the beautiful S.A.C. 
quilt crafted by our own Madeline Landry. 

As a result of this extremely successful and event-filled 
year, Tina Rogers, out-going President, was able to 
present a $35,000 cheque to the college for the new 
lighting system in the Ketchum Auditorium, and another 
$31,600 cheque for two day boy scholarships - the first 
time ever the Ladies' Guild has sponsored two 
scholarships in one year. Contributions for cadet 
uniforms and SASSIN and an additional contribution to 
the Ladies' Guild Endowment Fund were also made. 
A thousand heartfelt thanks to the many Ladies' Guild 
members and volunteers who made this the wonderful 
year it was!

events or for more information on upcoming Ladies' Guild 
events, contact us through the school at 905-727-3178 or

For the average Andrean the thought of a million-dollar gift to the College is remote; however, 
with the Insurance program the Foundation now has in place it is possible! The Foundation will join 
you in a partnership that will ensure financial strength for the future of St. Andrew's and create a 
bursary in your name forever. Please phone Jim Herder for details at 905-727-3178.

Exciting Development in S.A.C.'s Financial News 

1 997 saw the establishment of a planned giving program by the S.A.C. Foundation. 

For many years, the Foundation has owned a small number of life insurance policies 
on the lives of Old Boys. In 1 997 these policies were renewed and others added 
in an innovative program. 

Greatly Impacts the Endowment for Future Years 

Old Boys who are interested in making a significant major gift to the 
College can do so fairly painlessly by way of insurance. 

Life Insurance Premiums Matched by Foundation 

Sandy Munro '70, a Trustee of the S.A.C. Foundation, and Executitve Director 
Jim Herder have designed a program whereby the Foundation will match 
premiums paid by Old Boys on a policy on their own life. The policy is owned 
by the S.A.C. Foundation. 

Alumni Members Pay Half the Premium, We Pay the Other Half I 

The Alumni half is deductible for tax purposes the same as any other 

donation - so, for roughly one quarter of the premium charged - an Old Boy or friend 

of S.A.C. can provide a major planned gift. 

A Fully Endowed Scholarship 

The most common policy we are using for this program requires ten years of premiums 
to be paid, and then it is paid up. At that point, the Foundation will establish an 
endowed scholarship or bursary in the name of the insured. If you would enjoy having 
a fully endowed scholarship in your name or that of your family to enjoy for your 
lifetime call Jim Herder at 905-727-31 78.

John Dyment 

one of Canada's foremost 
aviation engineers, died 
April 5, 2000, in Vancouver. 

Jack attended St. Andrew's 
from 1920-1924. 

He wrote The Andrean a few 
years ago that he believes he 
may have set a record when he 
was sent down to the 
Headmaster to be caned on his 
first day at S.A.C. 

A graduate in Engineering 
from the University of Toronto, 
Jack was Chief Engineer for 
Air Canada for thirty-six years. 
Some of his many honours 
include being elected President 
of the Society of Automotive 
Engineers, being named to the 
University of Toronto 
Engineering Hall of Distinction, 
and receiving an honourary 
doctorate from the University of 
Toronto. He culminated his long 
and distinguished career by 
being elected to the Canadian 
Aviation Hall of Fame and 
appointed a Member of the 
Order of Canada. 

In 1998 Jack donated his 
extensive library to S.A.C.'s 
Towers Library, greatly 
enhancing the School's 

Jack is survived by his sons 
Paul and David and daughter-in- 
law Judith and their families; 
his wife Josephine and son John 
predeceased him.

Corporation after thirty years as 
an engineer. 

George Young 

died peacefully at Unionville, 
Ontario, on June 23, 2000. 

While at St. Andrew's, George 
was awarded the Lieutenant- 
Governor's Silver Medal in 1927. 

He graduated from the 
University of Toronto and was a 
long-time employee and partner 
of Dominion Securities. 

We are grateful that he 
donated his photo of the first 
graduating class from the 
Aurora campus and his S.A.C. 
Branch of Schoolboys' Scripture 
Union Members Card from 1927 
to the S.A.C. Archives. 

George is survived by his wife 
Helen, sons Peter and Paul and 
daughter Sally and their 
families. His daughter Patricia

George MacDonald 

died peacefully at home in 
Stouffville, Ontario, on 
October 3, 1999, at the age of 84. 

He was a Trustee of the 
St. Andrew's College Foundation 
from 1966-82. 

George began and ended 
his career of forty-three years 
with the investment firm of 
McLeod, Young, Weir 
(now ScotiaMcLeod). He was 
Chairman of the Board and 
Chief Executive Officer when he 
retired in 1979. His career at 
McLeod was interrupted by 
service in World War II when he 

joined the Royal Canadian Navy 
and served as a Lieutenant 
Commander on the North 
Atlantic convoys. 

After his retirement, he 
continued a very full business 
and social life, serving on 
several corporate boards and 
charities and playing golf. 

George is survived by his wife 
Betty, daughter Susan McGill 
and son Peter and their families. 

John Bell 

died May 16, 2000, in Toronto. 

John was a member of SAC's

He was retired from Massey 
Ferguson Ltd. and the Ontario 
Labour Relations Board. John 
served during World War II with 
the 62nd Battery, Royal 
Canadian Artillery and the Royal 
Hamilton Light Infantry. 

He is survived by his wife 
Marie, sons David and Timothy 
and their families. 

Bruce Ramsey 

died suddenly of a heart 
attack on March 31, 2000, while 
skiing at Mont Tremblant. 

Following St. Andrew's, he 
received his medical degree 
from McGill University. Bruce 
specialized in Ophthalmology 
and sub-specialized in 
Oculoplastic Surgery at Harvard 
University (in Basic Sciences) 
and The Manhattan Eye and Ear 
Hospital. His education was 
twice interrupted by Naval 
service in World War II and in 
the Korean War. His professional 
career spanned forty-three years 
at the Montreal General

passed away on February 13, 
2000, in Don Mills, Ontario. The

the University of Toronto and 
had a career in the investment 
business. He is survived by his 
wife Margaret. 

Holder) Blackwell 

died suddenly May 20, 2000, at 
his home in Jacksonville, 

He was founder and president 
of Delta Marine Constructors,

his sons continue in the bridge 
building company. Following 
St. Andrew's, Holden attended 
Duke University for one year, 
then served in the RCAF, 
returning to Duke at the end of 
the War. 

His wife Virginia wrote that he 
always looked forward to 
reading The Andrean and was 
familiar with a number of 
teachers mentioned throughout 
it. She believed they had a great 
influence on his life and even 
felt as if she knew a few of them. 

Holden is survived by his wife 
Virginia and sons Holden, 
Kenneth, Brian and Stuart and 
their families. 

Hugh Hamilton 

died in Venice, Florida, on 
May 26, 2000.

Robert W. 

The Andrean community was sadly 
diminished on June 1st when one of 
its most storied personalities passed 
away in Collingwood, Ontario. Bob 
Meagher was 75 and had suffered a 
long illness. 

Bob was a revered and respected 
staff member during the eras of 
three headmasters from 1972-1987. 
An ordained Catholic priest, he 
joined St. Andrew's in 1972 from 
Brebeuf College in Willowdale, 
where he was headmaster. He taught 
Latin, Greek and English, eventually 
becoming the first Head of 
Academics for the Lower School. 
He left St. Andrew's in 1987 when 
Minister of Immigration David 
Crombie recognized his talent as an 
organizer, teacher and pastor and 
appointed him as a Citizenship 

Court Judge. He retired in 1999. 

He was a favourite of many at 
St. Andrew's College, staff and 
students alike. Will Scoular, in his 
history of the school, Not an 
Ordinary Place, describes Bob 
Meagher as a larger-than-life figure 
particularly renowned as one of the 
few regular speakers at Chapel to 
exert a lasting influence on his 
charges. "His students never knew a 
dull moment, " the passage begins, 

Meagher had, as became his 
vocation, a strong pastoral bent and 
a caring interest in his pupils, 
describing himself as 'a slushy, 
sentimental Irishman.' In some boys 
he inspired almost a kind of 
hero-worship but, a just taskmaster, 
others thought that if you lost his 
favour, it was difficult to regain it. 

He became the director of the Lower 
School and his sermons in chapel 
never missed their mark. 'He didn't 
preach,' Jim Plouffe recalled, 'he 
convinced. He would stand up there 
and tell us stories about famous 
Andreans and about people of whom 
we had never heard. Of course, 
being young, the hour spent was 
often wasted whispering behind pew 
backs about our weekend exploits. It 
was not until two years after leaving 
S.A.C. that I realized Sunday Chapel 
and Meagher's talks were a defining 
part of being an Andrean.' 

Rupert Ray, a friend and 
colleague remembers: 

Our classrooms were side by side 

and we both cared deeply about the 

Chapel. His special mission: to leave 

an absolutely indelible impression 

on every "nifty niner" to pass 

through St. Andrew's College. 

To sum him up adequately in a few 

words: impossible! He could be 

maddening and loveable, complex 

and rewarding, wise and inscrutable, 

stern and kind, idiosyncratic and 

funny, awe-inspiring and just plain 

inspiring. His mind worked so 

cleanly, so quickly. He knew exactly 
what he thought about everything - 
or so it seemed! - and he could 
articulate his views in crystal-clear, 
beautifully honed sentences. Not a 
word wasted, not a word out of 
place. Remember those sermons? Bob 
is one of the most complete educators 
and competent communicators I 
ever expect to meet. I miss him. I'll 
never forget him. 

Bob's devotion to the Detroit Red 
Wings was legendary, and his 
devotion to SAC's Under 14 team 
and the hockey program in general 
over the years earned him 
recognition as the namesake for the 
Meagher Division at the annual 
MacPherson Tournament. He 
recalled that one of his life's great 
thrills was to sit with Gordie Howe 
at the tournament luncheon some 
years ago. 

A memorial service was held in 
Bob's beloved Collingwood on 
June 25. Donations may be made in 
Bob's name to the Collingwood 
General and Marine Hospital 
Foundation, the S.A.C. Foundation's 
Robert Meagher Memorial Fund or 
the All Saints Restoration Fund. 

"Sad news," wrote former Meagher 
student Jim Plouffe '87 on hearing 
the news of Bob's passing. "Of all 
the great teachers at the school, 
he taught me what it means to be 
an Andrean." 

He leaves his wife Sandra, 
Sandra's son Andrew '83, and 
nephews Gary 77 and Richard '78. 
He was predeceased by his brothers 
Ed and Fred, both of whom taught at 
the School.

'34 John Green wrote 
The Andrean that he is a proud 
resident of the town of Almonte, 
Ontario. Almonte's 'claim to fame' is 
that it is the birthplace of Prof. 
Naismith, inventor of basketball. He 
went on to recall Ed Fee, a "big, 
lovable guy and great S.A.C. 
basketball player in 1933" and S.A.C. 
contemporaries Bill Plaunt, Jack 
Perrin, Grant Donnelly and 

Tommy Hethrington, who all
